Resumen

Acute arterial hypotension elicited by sodium nitroprusside administration has evoked intraocular pressure decreases both in humans and experimental animals. When injecting vasoactive drugs into the blood stream intraocular pressure varied together with systemic arterial pressure alterations, so we decided to determine the mechanism involved in this variation. The evidence indicates that intraocular pressure varies together with mean blood pressure. This effect is mainly of a hydrodynamic nature, and must be taken into consideration when discussing the effect of vasoactive drugs on intraocular pressure.
